“A Day for Rest”

That was the title  of the photo prompt for January 1.  Our instructor said to “capture a photo that showcases the spirit of your New Year’s Day.”

As I mentioned yesterday, we spent the day at a birthday party.  Friends, drinks, games, cards – that is the spirit of how we spent the day.   A little app I found called “Talking Tom” caused hilarity to ensue:

I wish I had thought to record all of the laughing going on yesterday!

“Looking Out”

Today’s photo prompt said that we should “battle the elements today (even if only long enough for a click or two) as you “picture” a shot that offers just the breath of fresh air that always does you good!”  We are experiencing some very mild temperatures today so I didn’t have to battle more than a light sprinkle of rain to get my shot for today:

This is one of the local ponds in town.  I’ve featured it before.  I’m thinking about using it for Scott’s long term 4-season assignment too.  The email prompt today suggested that stepping outside today would result in that breath of fresh air that we could all use at this time of year.  With our oddly warm-for-January temps today, I thought the fog hovering over the pond made a neat expression of this idea.



  1. Love the fog. I saw lots of it while out for my jog. Did you take the dogs to the pond?

    • No, didn’t bring the dogs with me. Spur of the moment decision to stop by the pond while I was out; had my camera with me in case inspiration struck!

  2. I agree with Becky, very nice fog shot! I also love the New Year’s Day photo, it definitely tells a story about what happened!

    • Thanks, Holly. I took a bunch of shots trying to get the fog in just such a way.
      I’ll admit to being a little bummed at having to resort to flash for the first photo – even the 50 mm wide open couldn’t keep up with the action without blurring.

  3. The fog is beautiful, and I agree. It’s a good way to represent a “breath” of fresh air. Love the way the first shot tells a story about your day.

    • Thank you, Robin. I hope looking at another pond isn’t boring for you, LOL!
